Timelapse (GIF 15.3 MB)

This is the first Lunar Eclipse that I've actually watched in person. From 0707UTC to 1038UTC (02:07EST to 05:38EST). It was a long, yet fulfilling night. I decided to process the image and timelapse to fit what I saw in person. Most photographers will usually go for a more vibrant image.

This is a timelapse of all of the shots I managed to take of the Partial Lunar Eclipse.

Location, Weather, and Acquisition

All data was taken from my Bortel 4 backyard the night of November 18. Location was within a 15-mile radius of Comer, Georgia (USA) (34.0637° N, 83.1254° W). Weather data is no longer available. Due to the sheer amount of acquisition data (1.5TB), this is also no longer available.
